Goin to Mystic for the weekend, and randomly selected this as nothing in TDIH grabbed me. I went to downloadable and with no sorting saw this show which I am pretty sure I haven't ever listened to (Lord knows why) and was in the mood for Help On The Way-> Slipknot!-> Franklin's Tower so started streaming. Real nice.

P.S. Just did a quick forum search on 5-9-77 and got quite a few hits - seems this show is in more than a few folks top ten. Guess it is like my friend says "I'm so Broke I can't even Pay Attention".

For my money, what little I have, the May '77 run is simply IT. Not to mention that these were my first shows.

Don't forget the Auditorium Theatre on the 12th and 13th..

Can't agree with others that this show is better than barton hall. I can agree that is amazing for all of the things mentioned. Boston, and new haven are great on this run as well

Don't miss the Comes A Time from that show. I tend to rank that show higher than the night before, not so much for quality of playing, I just like the set list a little better.

Certainly one of the vintage's most colossal shows and clearly one of the bands greatest efforts, rivaling 5/8/77...full-bodied, hugely dense, immensely rich...this behemoth is also amazingly balanced and harmonius...a modern day legend. (100 pts)

Have a pint at the Daniel Packer Inn for me....

Spelled wrong last time - but still a great spot. Spent many a long evening there and in about New London. What in the world ever happened to Sweet Jane?

BD -

One of the things I enjoyed about being stationed in New London was the Daniel Packer Inn.

One of the few places I've found that has John Courage Ale on tap.

Figured you might know the same - great spot. Top of the morning to you (or afternoon back that way). And yes, I had some Courage on tap there as well.

Maybe stop for a few scoops at Drawbridge Ice Cream as well; it's really good.

Personally, I've always preferred that one over the Barton Hall show.

Agree 5/9 beats 5/8 by a nose.

As stated, the "Comes a Time" from 5/9/77 is pristine...fair "best of" territory (i've yet to hear a better one)

amazingly the Help->Slip>Franks from this show sounds almost exactly like the one played exactly one month later at Winterland (6/9/77) and both are quite outstanding.

Another very overlooked gem from 5/9/77 is the "Ship of Fools", which they never played better.

The Music Never Stopped from that show isn't too shabby either. I'll also second that it's better than Barton.
